ABILENE, Texas -

October is one of the wettest months of the year for our region and over the weekend, some cities found out why.

Abilene saw 0.40 inches of rain while Brownwood picked up 1.84 inches.

Storms remained stationary for hours over Snyder and Sweetwater, bringing 1.30 inches and 1.27 inches, respectively.

Sterling City's rainfall topped the board with 2.66 inches.

Stronger cold fronts and deeper moisture from the Pacific Ocean are just a few reasons why the showers increase during this month.

Showers have been hit or miss over the last few days but rain chances are still in the forecast for the next few days.
